Our access control system can help control the access of free flow entry into the building, and can deny access to any unwanted visitors. Coded access systems control the access through doors by the use of a digital keypad and lock releases.
Entering and leaving a building, whether it be a hospital, hotel, school, airport or office block was once something staff and visitors alike did without a second thought. There is an increasing demand for more control over access to buildings, and also within buildings; access control can be applied throughout buildings allowing different people access to specific areas.
The solution is the installation of an effective, simple to use access control system. We develop tailor-made systems using a wide range of technologies from intercoms to swipe card reader systems.
Access can be controlled on individual doors by installing a reader on the outside of the door to be controlled. Once the reader technology grants entry, the door can be unlocked via a suitable electromechanical lock.
If you wish to restrict or log persons exiting the building then a reader can also be installed on the inside of the door.
Restrictions can be programmed into a system to restrict certain people based upon time of day and day of week. This then forms a system to control access to your building. If the system is connected to a network, programming changes, real time logging and personnel tracking can be done at the touch of a button.
There are many reader technologies available such as keypad, proximity token, swipe card, finger print reader, face recognition and hands free readers.
Intercom systems allow communications between an entrance door and those inside the building. On pressing the ‘press for access’ button on the intercom panel, handset(s) can ring inside the building for example at the reception desk and a two way conversation can take place. Once the identity of the caller is confirmed, the door can be unlocked by pressing a button on the handset allowing the visitor entry.
These systems allow entrances to remain secure without impeding entry to visitors. They can be combined with a built in video camera to provide an image at the handset(s) to aid identification of the caller.
A keypad or proximity card reader can be incorporated into the intercom panel to allow staff free entry without needing to use the intercom.
